Article Abstract

From our regular book review column.

The elderly are the fastest growing segment of the population. As the population is aging, geriatrics is becoming a rapidly growing and converging subspecialty in medicine. Treating elderly patients can be difficult and challenging, as such patients usually present with complex medical and psychiatric problems. Many books on geriatrics are available to help the geriatricians but are either too extensive or too concise. Therefore the arrival
of this handbook, as it fills this very gap, is a welcome addition to geriatrics. As noted in the preface, much of current practice in geriatrics is based on anecdotal evidence and case report data. This handbook is filled with such pearls of anecdotal and clinically relevant information.
